Nizhnevartovsk (Finn. Alavartola, Russ. Нижневартовск) is a Uralican city, located in Yugra county, of which it is the second-largest city after Surgut. It is Uralica's 18th-largest city overall. The city, like most cities in the county, has a strong mining sector and a strong manufacturing sector.

It is also known for being the eastern end of Highway UH-1. "Mile Zero East" is located right on the banks of the Ob' River, at Mile Zero East Municipal Park.

Culture Edit

Nizhnevartovsk, like most cities in Yugra, has a predominantly Russian population, with populations of Ob Ugrics (mostly Mansi in the case of this city) and Hungarians also living in the city. Its residential sectors are largely mundane Communist-era flats in the actual city, so it isn't particularly the most desirable city for tourism, however, it does sit on the Ob River, so there are plenty of fishing and swimming opportunities there. The aforementioned Mile Zero East Municipal Park on the bank of the Ob' is also semi-popular.

In spite of its lack of tourist appeal, it does have all the services of a typical Uralican city, including two concert halls, one drama theatre, and numerous sporting grounds.

Sport Edit

Nizhnevartovsk has the infamous distinction of being the city with the lowest sport facility amount per capita. While still in line with city requirements, it makes for a very small base for professional athleticism. That said, the most popular sport in the city is cross-country skiing, with biathlon, ice hockey, bandy, and football (soccer) also having strong followings.
